I'm not getting the video with that link, sicknero. It's a thing that's been mentioned here previously so if I post links here I use the one from YouTube share option instead of the URL in the address bar and that seems to work - here;

I think that's the right one? ..... it's very good

I just checked, it won't open for me either.

That is the right one anyway, thanks Deya : )

Bright antennae bristle with the energy
Emotional feedback on a timeless wavelength
Bearing a gift beyond price .... almost free"

I watched a horrendous movie last night (The accountant), but I am glad I was able to endured it to the end because at the end of the movie the song I am linking came up. I have never heard it before or knew who was playing it but after I heard the first few lines I thought it sounded so good I had to find out.

The name of the guy playing is Sean Rowe, he sort of sounds like a mixture of Tom Waits, with Dylan and Springsteen. I think this is quality.

Thunder road, one of my favorites from Bruce. I like this kind of version, playing solo, acoustic and the harmonica.

On the road to find out.

I have a few more. Play this love song by Cat Stevens to your wife or girl friend, and mean what it says, she ll like it.

Signature song by Bruce. Born to run. He tells the story behind the song.

In the 80s Bruce kind of went commercial a little bit, and Dancing in the dark was Bruce as commercial as ever. Still, good rhythm and was fun. When playing live, at the end of the song he usually pulled a girl from the crowd to dance. Here he does it with his mom and younger sister. Nice video.

So, music buffs, which artists\bands do you remember most for their one-hit wonders?

I'm not talking about what they might have contributed musically afterwards because that certainly doesn't apply to my first link, but just those that only had the one hit single.

This first is one of my favorite tracks.

Following that, you can't get much more different than this.

This one is easy for me, MC. A few seconds after reading your post, "Please be with me" came to mind.

This beautiful song was written by Scott Boyer, the leader of a group from Macon, Georgia called Cowboy, thats right the group was called Cowboy. This band never got to be well known, only big fans of late 60s and early 70s Southern music fans knew about them (like me).

Boyer and Cowboys main contribution to music was Please be with me. That was their only big hit. Probably the only reason this song became a hit and well known was because Eric Clapton covered it and released it in one of his albums. That was Boyer's big break.

For me personally, Please be with me is one of my all time favorites, I dont know, top 50 maybe. I posted it at least 2 or 3 times before in this thread. My favorite version is one of the 2 recordings Boyer and Cowboy did with Duane Allman. Duane plays dobro and sounds fantastic. Here is the version with Duane.

And the Slowhand (Clapton) version.

Ryan Paris - Dolce Vita;

Plastic Bertrand - Ca Plane Pour Moi;

One hit wonders but, funnily enough, these songs still fill a dance floor if played today.

Euro Pop at it's finest .... and I actually think certain one hit wonders are some of the best pop songs ever released.
